SOILL Fall Unified eSports League
We are excited to announce the 1st season of the SOILL Unified eSports League, a multi-week Unified Rocket League experience for Middle, High School and College aged athletes and partners. Special Olympics Illinois invites you to an exciting opportunity for athletes and unified partners to stay connected, compete, and have fun. The League will launch on Wednesday, September 29 and run through Wednesday, November 3, and you won’t want to miss it!
The SOILL Unified eSports League is a great way to meet athletes and unified partners from schools across the state. Each school team will include players for 3 vs. 3 Rocket League games (2 SOILL Athletes and 1 Unified Partner). Schools are asked to have no more than two teams compete in the league – if more opportunities open up, SOILL will reach out to interested programs.
Each team will include up to 5 players (three to play with two acting as alternates). Max of two Rocket League teams per school, each team must have a minimum of three players including two athletes and one unified partner.
All games will be played on Wednesday nights each week – Starting at 5:00 PM CST. Each team will have ONE scheduled match each week. Each match-up will be a best of 5 series. Scores will need to be reported after each game in the series via a form or Discord.
